Fall Out Boy Pay Homage To Michael Jackson In New Video

April 21, 2008
Fall Out Boy Pay Homage To Michael Jackson In New VideoFall Out Boy will pay homage to the career of Michael Jackson in the video for the new single – a cover of the singer’s hit, ‘Beat It’.

Patrick Stump, the band’s frontman, said the video had been inspired by all Jackson's videos but made “on a Fall Out Boy budget, so it’s not quite as fancy."

The band’s cover of the song has become a firm favourite with fans and recently featured on their live DVD '****'.

Speaking about the concept of the video, bassist Pete Wentz said: "If there were all these places where MJ can make his comeback, I would suggest this video.

“He should really let the world know he's still around. I don't know what our budget is, but I know it does not include enough to get him here.

“Multiple calls were not returned. I don't think Michael Jackson has a number.”

Fall Out Boy’s video for ‘Beat It’ is expected to premiere over the coming weeks.
